Hello I am looking for anyone that has the book:

It has all the names of my Mueller family and who they married.
It has been out of print for years.
If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Hello-My name is Arlene and this is my first post to the list. This is general information I have learned doing research.
My family was from West Prussia. They were Lutheran. Found several generations on Family Search for the Lutheran Church records. My great grandparents must of joined another religion, no more records. In the Lutheran Church, probably in the 1800's and before the ministers did all the Bible teachings. My great grandparents held Bible Studies and prayer groups in their home which was not allowed if you were a member of the Lutheran Church. My Swedish ancestors left Sweden for America because they wanted to study the Bible and be free of their Swedish minister teachings.
Searching for Illinois ancestors? If you are near Springfield, IL go to the Illinois State Archives. Very helpful staff! Names I am researching, I check the death records for 1917-1947. I have found children of ancestors this way. For a small fee you can make a copy of a death certificate. Interesting to discover what someone died from. You can find of list of what is available in Illinois -https:www.ilsos.gov. Another helpful index is their Illinois Statewide Marriage Index 1763-1900. The Archives houses books on each county. The Abraham Lincoln Library houses old newspapers, found many family obituaries.
Happy Hunting! Arlene Nelson

You did good.

As for the burials, typical 25 year lease in Germany, except for certain types of cemeteries, most are moved to make way for later burials.

I hope I put the hashtags in the subject line correctly?

I'm researching my GrGM Mary Ann Buchtmann, b. 1859, d. 1946, from Hanover Region, daughter of Hermann Buchtmann and Anna? (LNU). Supposedly Mary Anna's parents were buried in St. Jacobi's Cemetery in Whitlohe, Landkreis Verden, Niedersachsen, but I was told by a cousin that the church records are not in order, and if the family doesn't keep up with payments, the burial plots are used for someone else?  I'm trying to find out her mother's full name, I also can't find any information on her sister, Dora Elizabeth Buchtmann b. 1873, d. 1850, nor her brothers Franz and Henry. Her death ctf. doesn't mention her mother's name, neither does the death ctf. of her sister Dora. We did have MtDNA tested through FTDNA, we're haplogroup T2b, but it's very hard to find relatives, because most FTDNA contributors either don't have a family tree posted, or they only have a few people on their tree (or marked "Private" for 3 generations).

We do have information on her husband from Baden Baden, Joseph Schuster, b. 1865, d. 1920, but if someone out there is related/DNA match to "Pamela Thompson" on Ancestry, I'd appreciate additional information. 
Thank you,
Mary Stringer

Henckel, Trutsch, Reuter & Zimmermann in #Bavaria

Hi,
My name is Karen and this is my first post to the list, hoping I may find someone tracing the same tree.
 
My 2 x Great Grandmother aria Magdalena Reuter born in 1840 Urphar  (just outside of Wertheim) came to Australia in 1862. Lucky for me her papers, workbook and letters from home were kept and I have copies.
I have obtained her birth certificate and her parents marriage certificate from Wertheim. Her father was Heinrich Reuter/Reiter and her mother Maria Magdalena maiden name was Zimmermann.
Magdalena married Johannes Henckel in 1863. Johannes was born 1 May 1820 in Offenbach/M. He was previously married to Anna Margaretha Schmidt, and they came to Australia in 1849, then Anna died in 1861.
I had a trip to Germany visiting Offenbach and Urphar, but because of a knee injury, I was unable to get around and do as much as I would have like to. But in Offenbach Archives the showed me a book from 1800’s, no gloves or anything, and they gave me a photo copy of the pages. It had stated that Johannes had not been born in Offenbach but arrived there in the 29th February 1844 and that he was born in Offenburf?(I think that what it is). Also his brother Joseph Friedrich came to Offenbach 28th February 1845.
 
Could anyone help with knowing where Offenburf is.  Also for Magdalena, I could not find any old grave yards at Urphar or Wertheim, I am trying to find when her father died, as letters from home in 1864/5 do not mention him. Love to hear from anyone related.
Cheers Karen

Hello Everyone,
There still seems to be some confusion about how hashtags help and how to use them.  I've written up some info that will hopefully shed some light on the subject.  
If you have further questions, please feel free to respond to me only.  I'll collect the new info and send an update to all, so everyone doesn't get barraged with this topic.


About Hashtags
Hashtags have been set up for each region in today's Germany as well as old Germany's provinces and colonies (prior to 1947). Messages to the group may be assigned Up to 5 hashtags to identify the region(s) involved in the message. 
 
What Hashtags Can Do for You:
- you can indicate the region you are researching. 
- you can search on posts relating to a specific hashtag (see below).
- you can mute hashtags that you are not interested in and you will not see emails with those hashtags (see below).
- you can introduce yourself to the group by including hashtag #intro in the subject line of a message that describes your interests and ancestry questions. Example subject line: “My name is Mark #intro"
 
To set Hashtag on a Message:
Hashtags are set by including them in the subject line of a message. The subject line should include the family name(s) and the pertinent hashtag(s) (up to 5) that you are interested in. Hashtags should be placed at the end of the subject line. Example subject line: “Family Falkenberg Prior to 1890 #westprussia”.  or more concisely "Falkenberg Prior to 1890 #westprussia”.  By putting the hashtag on the subject line, people not interested in those regions will not even get the message. By putting the family name(s) on the subject line, people can easily disregard the message without having to open it and read it.
 
To Search on a Particular Hashtag:
Hashtags can be searched on to easily find all messages tagged with it. You may search on any active hashtag, muted or not.
1. log into group.io
2. on left select “# Hashtags"
3. for each region that you are interested in, click in the large box surrounding it.
Alternatively,
1. log into group.io
2. on left select “Messages"
3. Select the desired region from the light blue “# Hashtags” drop down menu at the top of the list of messages.
 
To configure the hashtags you are interested and those you wish to mute:
Hashtags act as a filter for which email you receive from the group. You will only receive emails of messages with hashtags you have not muted. If a message has only hashtags you have muted, it will not be sent to you. You may still search on muted hashtags (see above).
1. log into group.io
2. on left select “# Hashtags"
3. for each region that you are not interested in, click “Mute” then set the preferred Duration and click the blue ”+ Mute” button. 

So, please include hashtag(s) on your subject line and the family name if message about that family.  If it's a message of general interest, you can eliminate family or hashtags as you wish.

Happy hunting!

Re: "prefixes" uffr and uffm in marriage records #Rheinland

I found this book about the Pennsylvania Dutch Language.  It may help with other unusual words that are specific to a particular dialect.

Diminutives in Pennsylvania Germans (PG). and Suabian are made with-li; both use 'des' for das, 'uffm' for auf dem, 'biirǝ' for birnen, 'g'hat' or 'kat' for gehabt, 'suu˛' for sohn, 'schoof' for schâf, 'Schwop' for Schwâbe, 'als' for alles, and 'as' for als.

And 'uffr' would be ‘auf der’.

Someone was asking about Pennsylvania germans and this book talks about them also:
